PostSubject: !!!RULES!!!   Fri Nov 21, 2008 4:42 pm

The Rules are like the WWE Official Forum

Offensive Material - Users may not transmit or encourage others to transmit material or links to material considered patently offensive in nature. This includes, but is not limited to using vulgar, profane, or sexually explicit language; using race, religion, sexual orientation, culture, ethnicity, handicap, nationality, or gender as a means of insult; using threatening, harassing, defamatory, hate-speech, or libelous language; and posting, requesting, or otherwise sharing material considered pornographic, obscene, graphic, or hate speech.

Vulgar language or substitutes for such – WWE Fan Nation is programmed with a list of words that are considered vulgar under any context, and these words are not allowed to be used. Attempting to bypass the censor by misspelling, inserting spaces or symbols, transposing letters, using look-alike symbols, or any other method is not allowed. The only acceptable method of posting one of these vulgar words is to completely obscure it, making it impossible to determine what the word is without context.
Additionally, certain words are prohibited from being used in topic titles and user information pages; bypassing the censor to post those words where they are restricted is also disallowed.
For example, if "yuris" is a banned word, the following are examples of bypassing that are not allowed: y-u-r-i-s, y*r*s, yur-is, yurrris, y***s. Allowed: *****, youriz, *****ed, *****ing, y'ed, y-word. (Note: Neither -ed nor -ing are parts of the banned word "yuris".)
Taking advantage of any limits in WWE Fan Nation’s language filtering capabilities is not allowed. Any limits in such filters shall not be taken as permission to bypass rules regarding vulgar language.

‘Flaming’ - Communications clearly insulting other users, individually or as a group, directly or indirectly, are not allowed. This includes, but is not limited to: name-calling ("You're an idiot", "You moron"); direct insults and orders ("Screw you", "Go kill yourself"); insinuations ("Are you stupid or something?"); or insults towards family ("Your mom...").
Users participating in such activity will have their accounts suspended and/or deleted, depending on the severity of the offense.

‘Trolling’ (Inciting flames) - Messages intended solely to annoy and/or offend other users by going against the clear nature of a Forum or thread are not allowed. This includes, but is not limited to: provoking other users to respond with flames; provoking fans of a particular Superstar, event, brand, or sport, especially on boards or topics dedicated to that Superstar, event, brand, or sport; making misleading topic titles; asking obviously useless questions; and posting false information as fact.

Illegal activity - Communications that violate or incite others to violate the law are not allowed. This includes, but is not limited to, asking for or providing: illegal copies of WWE copyrighted music, movies, videos, or any other type of media; or reprints of material from other web sites.

Advertising and ‘Spam’ - Messages that clearly advertise a service or product are not allowed. This includes, but is not limited to: unsolicited commercial or personal web site advertisements; For-Sale/For-Trade/For-Auction/Wanted notices; "Make Money Fast" scams, chain letters, and pyramid schemes; or any referrer-ID based sites (including both games and free-item marketing sites). Also, the sale of WWE tickets and merchandise is also strictly prohibited in the Forums.
Users are allowed to request comments on their WWE Fan Nation profile in a social setting, or provide, only once, an interesting or relevant link to another site.

Off-topic postings - The main purpose of the Forums are to provide discussion opportunities for various areas of WWE action, events, history and its Superstars. Topicality is expected and will be enforced on all message boards not noted as purely social in nature. Moderators may move threads to more appropriate categories of the Forums if they deem it necessary.

Disruptive Behavior - Behaviors that disrupts WWE Fan Nation for other users, intentional or not, are prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to: messages or topic titles that force browsers to scroll horizontally; large blank or content-free messages; "bumping" multiple older topics (posting in them well after the last post); posting multiple identical or near-identical messages or topics, including "fad" posts or topics; intentionally hard-to-read topic titles or posts (i.e. ALL CAPS, AlTeRnAtE cApS, no spaces, no or excessive punctuation); posting multiple hard-to-read or nonsensical messages in a single or multiple topics; posting large ASCII art (except in social topics specifically calling for it); or post counting (i.e. "First", "100th Post").

Storyline Spoilers - Posting "spoilers", or critical storyline details, about WWE programming, games, movies, time-delayed broadcast events, or other media in the title of a topic or in a message without a clear notice is prohibited. To discuss such information in a topic, users should leave the title of the topic as vague as possible, ensuring that no mention of the actual spoiler itself is included, and include a warning (i.e. "SPOILER") in the topic title.
In a message post in a non-marked or otherwise unexpected topic, users should leave several blank lines in a post after a warning before revealing any vital plot information, to respect WWE fans that want to be surprised when WWE programming airs in their market.

Flooding, Invading, and Board Wars - Flooding a board with multiple disruptive topics or messages; invading another board (flooding a board as a group with multiple topics or messages); instigating, participating in, or retaliating in an invasion of a message board or any other online service; announcing or inciting a "war" or any conflict with the regular members of another board.

Impersonation - Impersonating WWE Superstars, celebrities or other users by creating and/or using a user account with a name clearly intended to impersonate, mock, or antagonize another user, or otherwise falsely claiming to be another member is strictly prohibited. Also, users that have profiles that post and comment in a manner that would have other WWE Fan Nation members believe they are an authentic WWE Superstar – past or present – will have their accounts deleted by moderators.
The only authentic WWE Superstars profiles on WWE Fan Nation are listed in the “Superstars Profiles” tab on the home page.

Harassment - Continual harassing behavior directed towards a certain individual or group with the intent of creating an intimidating, offensive, or hostile environment on the Forums, with or without use of explicit or implicit threats is strictly prohibited. Posting contact or other private information of any person (WWE Fan Nation user or not) is also prohibited.

Topics and messages that violate these guidelines based off of the WWE.com Terms of Use will be deleted from the Forums and additional penalties may be applied at our moderators' discretion, including suspension and/or deletion of the poster’s WWE Fan Nation account. Re-posting deleted violations (yours or those of others) is also considered a violation.

Readers of the WWE Fan Nation Forums that witness user content posted in an offensive manner listed above should report the activity to moderators on duty. They can do so by clicking on the “Report Abuse” icon on the offensive post, and file a report that goes directly to moderators for disciplinary action.

Messages and topics may be removed from the Forums at any time and for any reason at the sole discretion of the WWE Fan Nation moderation team. User accounts may be warned, suspended, or deleted at any time and for any reason at the sole discretion the WWE Fan Nation moderation team.

All determinations of what is "acceptable" and "unacceptable" content will be determined solely by our moderators and network administrators. Intentional, repeated, or severe violations are cause for the banning of your entire WWE Fan Nation account, all use of the WWE Fan Nation Forums from your IP address or your entire ISP. In such event, we also reserve the right to contact your ISP concerning your activities.
